So… is this purely a bingo site or does BingoMania have a few surprises to share with its members? We hope it is the latter, but we'll find out for certain as we go through our review.
The site opens with an odd-looking character wearing a #1 badge, so we guess they've had some success with the bingo games on this site. But is it bingo and nothing more or are there other games to be found here? Let's see.
Software brands you might know
The site is powered by an impressive collection of games you'll surely love to see. Pragmatic Play is among the software developers there, along with Rival Gaming, Parlay Games, and Mobilots.
What is lurking inside the BingoMania lobby?
More than just bingo… but then, you probably already figured that out. You can go through to the games area from the menu near the top of any page. This consists of six gaming areas. Five of those cover the available game selections:
• Bingo • Slots • Video poker • Table games • Lottery
It's unusual to see a lottery option, but nice to see familiar casino categories included there too. You can also look out for the top games section - the ideal option to choose, perhaps, on your first few visits to the site.
How to join the casino
Much of the top portion of the landing page tells you about the welcome bonus on offer. We'll explore that in detail in a bit, but first, we should confirm that hitting the button provided will lead you into the signup process.
Signup restrictions at BingoMania
The website states that only those aged 18 and over can play at the site. We also had a look through other areas of the terms and conditions. Under the registration section, it states that you cannot use the site if you live in Hungary, Romania, or Russia.
Games at BingoMania
You can see some highlights from each category in the gaming area when you select one. The full range is not viewable until you log into your member account. This does mean you won't see everything unless you sign up, but you can read more about some of the titles and other features on the site. They're not short on bringing you lots of information at this stage.
Slots include some quirky titles
Look out for Trolling for Treasure, Bring Home the Bacon (yes, it does feature pigs), and Sugar Kisses, among others. You can see a screenshot of each of the games in the relevant area of the site.
They also make a point of stating that their games can be played from mere pennies at a time. That means your budget is sure to work with the games you'll find at this casino.
What about the availability of free games?
Most games nowadays do come with an option to try them rather than forcing you to pay to play them. If you choose this option, you can experience the game as it might be with real bets. Of course, no guarantees are given regarding potential winnings, but you'll at least get the idea of how a game works.
Paid games at just a few cents per spin
This news is confirmed on the pages of the BingoMania website. Of course, they offer more than just slots, so you can participate in many other games at low cost too.
We would suggest creating a budget and then matching it to the available games that have the lowest betting ranges. Make sure you don't increase your betting range more than you're comfortable with or can afford.
New slot games… from BingoMania?
There are several software developers involved here, as we have already seen. However, we also know that the site itself has some unique games to offer its players. If you decide to try those, you can play some games you'll never get the chance to play anywhere else. St Patty's Gold is highlighted as one such game.
Promotions fall into several categories
It's always a good sign when you find a casino or bingo site that has several subcategories in its promotional area. That's true of this site, where the promo area covers the latest offers, rewards, free bonuses, tournaments, and bingo pals opportunities.
Obviously, you'll want to know more about the latest promos. These include a progressive bonus reward - not something we've seen anywhere else. The more you play, the bigger your reward is going to be.
Of course, signing up to most sites of this nature typically brings a reward too. At BingoMania, you can grab $100 as an introductory freebie when you sign up and make your first deposit.
Tournaments appear under the promos heading
You may well miss them through looking for those promotions. Yet tournaments are always popular with players. Slot tournaments take place every weekend, while bingo tourneys are regularly available elsewhere.
We also noticed a Monday to Wednesday special involving a Sweet Slots Tourney, so there is plenty of potential in this area. Be prepared for the advertised events to change too. Check when you visit to see which event you could enter.
Recent casino winners can be found on the home page
Bingo Mania offers a list of three recent winners further down the main page. You are also invited to view more, and if you do so, you'll see more on the next page. You can sort them according to all-time, reviews, and recent winners.
Rewards are available too
And again, they appear under the promo heading. This is where you can learn more about the Star Levels. You need to earn XPs to move through the levels at Bingo Mania. Blue Star is where the journey begins, before moving through several other levels until you eventually - hopefully - arrive at Gold Star levels. As you might guess, each level gives you bigger and better rewards and perks.
Can you visit BingoMania using a tablet or smartphone?
You can, and you don't need to download anything to do so. The site has been designed to look good and be readable and easy to navigate no matter how you view it. No app is needed or offered - just choose your usual browser and you should have no problem accessing the site.
If you visit on a computer, the games are played using the instant play option. Nothing to download in this case either.
Playing without registration isn't possible
If you choose a game, you'll be asked either to log in or to join the site if you haven't already. You can try games without paying for them if you're a member; otherwise you cannot access them.
A great instant play website
BingoMania doesn't sound like a regular casino, but it does offer many of the usual games and features you would expect to see in such a site. All this and instant play access too once you're a member - it won't get much better.
The Kickass Partners website is responsible for managing the affiliate program for BingoMania. You can see more about the program on the affiliate page. The link doesn't seem to be active though, so you would need to search online to find the appropriate site.
No sporting features are included
This site promotes itself as a bingo site, and while there are other features to take note of, none of them dip into the sporting arena.
Have you read their blog?
They may not have a forum you can browse around, but BingoMania does have its own blog. They seem to publish new posts quite often, always related to bingo yet with a few quirky connections too.
For instance, a couple of recent posts touched on food and celebrities! And yes, they were related to bingo.
No live dealers are available
This site isn't one that bases any of its games in a live casino.
Deposits at BingoMania
You can expect to find the usual selection of cards and online wallets available for this purpose.
How to withdraw funds
If you manage to get the better of one of the games, you can withdraw those monies in several ways. They do still provide checks too, which can't be said of many other sites.
No Bitcoin deals or offers available
That's because they have yet to add Bitcoin to their banking options, sadly.
Top marks for assistance
The help options are good at this site. They've got live chat, but you can also access their help desk if needed. There are three email addresses directing you to various departments, along with phone support via a toll-free number. Really, what else could you ask for?
They do have lots of helpful pages too though, so the site itself ranks well on a helpful note.
